Tell your senators to oppose William Barr’s confirmation to lead the Department of Justice.
At his confirmation hearing, William Barr had the opportunity to reassure senators and the American people of his commitment to enforcing civil rights. He failed to do so.
We need an attorney general who is committed to doing that job -- rather than doubling down on the Sessions Justice Department’s disregard for the rule of law and civil and human rights.
Barr’s testimony previews his refusal to change course. As such, he is not fit to serve as our nation’s next attorney general.
Make your voice heard. Tell your senators to oppose Barr’s confirmation.
Sample letter to your senators:
Dear Senator [Name here],
As your constituent, I strongly oppose the confirmation of William Barr to be the next attorney general of the United States. Despite the opportunity to reassure the American people of his commitment to enforcing the civil rights of all people in America, Mr. Barr failed to do so when he testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
We need an attorney general who is committed to equal justice -- rather than one who will double down on the Sessions Justice Department’s disregard for the rule of law and civil and human rights.
Mr. Barr’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee previewed his refusal to change course -- and as such, he proved he is not fit to serve as our next attorney general.
I implore you to oppose the confirmation of Mr. Barr.
[Your name here]
